Sapporo, Japan (PRWEB) September 03, 2012
In her new book, “Singapore and the Supernatural: The weight of fate rests great on those who must not relate” (published by iUniverse), author Regina Long takes to the cosmopolitan streets of modern Singapore, telling a fresh new contemporary paranormal tale about a young model who learns of her supernatural destiny.
Beautiful Singaporean model CJ Bell begins to see ghosts as predicted by the neighborhood Malay witch doctor – it is an ability she was born with and had always tried to deny. She finds she can deny her destiny no longer when two men enter her life: the American banker, David Lee, who comes to claim her heart, and the adventurous archaeologist, Tanki Solo, who, without anyone’s knowledge, shares with CJ the same dark secrets of an invisible dimension that existed in 16th century Greece.
What has CJ inherited from a long forgotten civilization that returns to demand her participation? How many more people must die before she finally realizes what the spirits from point purgatory are trying to tell her to do, and once she realizes, will she have the strength to keep her dark date with her supernatural fate?
Readers are sure to answer these exciting questions and more in “Singapore and the Supernatural.”
An excerpt from “Singapore and the Supernatural”:
A transparent force drew him out of the water; it held him in front of the statue so that the man was eye to eye with the famous icon as the water that was spewing out of its mouth ceased flowing. He stared in shock at the statue. The Merlion stared back at him with red glowing eyes. In the next moment a stream of thick, white water launched itself from the mouth of the Merlion. The liquid barrage knocked him out of his levitating position and he plunged into the river, a moment later he re-emerged gasping, he looked in fear at the possessed book and cursed, “ba…baastaard”.
